Ryan's Crossing

After ten years, Ryan's parents found his runaway sister, Amber. Now, as he drives to meet up with her and his parents before her wedding, his mind fills with the changes coming. Besides figuring out where she will fit into his life, a job change is on the horizon for him. But should he stick with small town life? Or should he move to Portland, Oregon?

Meeting the family his sister is marrying into only brings more questions. Maybe moving to nearby Portland is the better choice. But something about the town of Crossing calls to him. Is it the friendly people who openly accept him as Amber's brother or the cute brunette who happens to be sister of the groom? As Ryan weighs the pros and cons, he decides to put God to the test. Will He answer? Will He let him know which choices to make? And what if Ryan doesn t like the answer?

Goodreads Summary

Ryan’s life is in flux.  Reuniting with his sister after 10 years of separation and making a decision about his career have Ryan under a lot of pressure.  Rather than blindly making choices, Ryan turns to God for help and finds his answers with heavenly assistance.
I thoroughly enjoyed Daws’s novel.  Ryan’s Crossing began where Crossing Values ended, continuing on with the storyline already presented.  Ryan is a sympathetic character who lives a complicated life.  I liked reading about his discoveries, decisions, and romance with Brittany.  The Christian messages in the novel were uplifting and inspiring.  I am excited to read the next book in the series.  
Anyone could read this book, but the religious messages make Ryan’s Crossing ideal for a Christian audience.  From personal experience, I recommend reading this book on a dreary day.  Carrie Daws’ writing will make you happy and leave you feeling content with life.  I give Ryan’s Crossing 4.5 out of 5 stars.  

4 1/2 Stars
